  • We had a fantastic experience here! The staff were very helpful, kind, and when there was a problem with the lock on our door they bought us a beer. The beds were comfortable and we felt very safe and happy with our accommodations. We would definitely stay here again!

  • The hostel is right next to the rail station. So if you are a light sleeper then this might be a problem. The beds are very thin and at times quite uncomfortable. The showers can be good, depending on how many people shower at once. Since the water pressure is affected by how many people shower. The hostel is relatively closed to big Ben and Buckingham palace, and its a walk away the tube. The hostel has a great bar, with a great atmosphere. The staff is courteous, friendly and professional.

  • This was our favorite hostel of our entire 3 week trip around Europe! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The wifi connection was good but it was annoying at times because you had to keep signing into it. The breakfast was pretty good, there was a good variety including fruit and coffee. The location is awesome, walking distance to Big Ben and very close to a tube station. The cleaning lady was around a lot and she was super friendly. You should definitely stay here!!!
